Any chance of getting some sci-fi films ie Rocketship X-M,
Destination Moon, or some other sci-fi films of the 1950's?

I know Destination Moon is under copyright, which sucketh mightily, because I'm a huge Heinlein fan. I'm fairly sure there are some early space operas in the Archive. Isn't there a Flash Gordon serial?

About Rocketship X-M i`m not really sure abaut its copyright status .. the only site that listed it as to be in the Public Domain is desertislandfilms.com and that guy who runs desertislandfilms.com isn`t really trustworthy

well,K-otic, for its time, Quatermass was a quite serious sci-fi show. Ther are only three serials that I know of and two of them were made into feature films. In fact, the first one, which deals with a faulty manned space mission was redone by the BBC a few years ago for a new audience.

Thank you much for this, but I what I am after is something that is not currently in IA. I mean some film of the 1950's, that has not been placed in IA ie Rocket ship XM, the man called X, or something of that nature that has not been uploaded yet into IA that maybe uploaded in the near future.
